I’ve been doing voice-over work on Upwork to get experience but these $10 gigs aren’t exactly paying the bills. Where should I start looking for more serious work?

Fiverr pays a little better and has more advanced jobs than Upwork if you want to try them out. If not you can try looking at sites like indeed.

Start by looking for voice-over work on dedicated job boards or search engines. You may also want to consider networking with other professionals in the industry. Finally, don't be afraid to reach out to potential clients directly and pitch your services.

Use pages like Indeed or SimplyHired. You can also search for casting calls on websites like Backstage.com or Casting Calls America. Another option are places like Voices.com and Fiverr.com. There's sure to be a variety of jobs available there that are a better fit for your skills and experience level.

Just gotta raise your rates as you go, the reviews and portfolio pieces that you SHOULD be getting will help you as leverage with other clients

Yeah, or get an agency. Try raising rates first before you give the agency a cut IMO

Have you tried submitting to an actual agency? They will probably be able to get you hired for high paying gigs. The people who hire for high paying jobs will likely go through an agency before a freelancing site. Good luck on everything!

Have you given signing into an actual agency a shot? I'm sure you have enough experience from your gigs to have a good portfolio to show. That way you'll get more consistent and regular work.

Raise your rates. There are fewer high budget projects on upwork, but they do exist and have less competition. Don't be afraid to filter out the lower paying jobs.

Do you know any agents? Maybe you can find some leads on LinkedIn. You should check it out. Best of luck, OP!
